    AR 15

    Posted by Joe Robinson on Feb 28th 2021

    Finally got to shoot my AR. Put about 50 rounds(ammo isn't easy to get) and no issue's at all. Very easy and comfortable to shoot even for a lefty like me.

    My (2) AR-15's

    Posted by ricky thompson on Feb 26th 2021

    My guns came in Good Shape no problems, The ONLY Problem I Have is You Can not TALK to anyone. They do not answer there phone and they never call you back when you leave a message.. Very Sad, I hope they get there PR together because I have friends that have seen the Guns and what to buy, But they do not want the PAIN IN THE YOU KNOW WHERE I had with no one to Talk to.. Best Wishes Great Lakes and Thank you for Great AR'S!

    Great product and great service. It’s a tack driver.

    I’ll be glad when their new building is open. As small as their sales area currently is. They still maintained a high level of professionalism, curtesy, and customer service. Thank you very much. I’ll be back when your new building opens.
